Wisconsin’s basketball team fought valiantly to secure the first position at the recently held PUSAG games.
The games, held at the University of Cape Coast, brought together sportsmen and women from private universities to battle for honors in various sporting disciplines.
The team presented the Vice Chancellor, Professor Obeng Mireku, together with the Registrar, Mr. Frank Yeboah, the trophy.
The Vice Chancellor, on behalf of management of the university, praised the team for their efforts and recounted the sacrifices they had to make to get to the games. The Vice-Chancellor Professor Obeng Mireku added that apart from intellectual activities sports is critical because of its health and social benefits. He urged the Dean of Students and the SRC to work closely in bringing up a female team for next year’s PUSAG games.
